    Bought a partially built frame/engine and spool and steering rack, suffered a little buyers remorse when I got things home and had a good look. Spent bout a year looking at it sitting in the shop, then decided wtf, I had intended to do a project to learn some welding skill so I might as well get after it. I have it pretty much finished now, a year later, having trolled this site for info and ideas I thought I should share the result. didn't think to take any pics until I had the seat, engine and spool mounted.

    Frame was visibly cockeyed, cut a half doz. welds to bring it close, not square by any means but at least not so wonky. Removed the ugly and the iffy welds, advert. said it came with the plans, should have looked better, no frame plans in the tube, so we just carry on making lemonade. One other interesting note is one of the u joints is a unicorn, numbers don't work and measurement of cross and caps not found in system, embarrassed a few partsmen. Was going to replace the u joints as the ones supplied were used, now Ill just wait till they fail and decide whether to go to CVs. Whoever built the spool and axels sure knew how to weld.

    Left the front till last, had to think about that a little fist before committing, have a couple quads that I thought about donating their front ends but decided to build my own, spindles are from 400EX.

    This is the first iteration, revisions had to be made to the steering, shift linkage, throttle, brake pedal and fuel tank.
